Getting a job with one of the Big 4: my graduate career with PwC- AMAWatch
Why are you interested in accounting?
Is accounting actually fun and do you see yourself working with PwC in the future?
I'm in year 12 and I have no idea as to what I want to do in the future but I'm only going into accounting for job security and good pay and then once I find something better I'll leave (I don't think I'll work as an accountant for long because I might end up starting my own business, investing in something or I'll go into marketing because it seems fun).
Need more help on going postgrad?
Hello! I'm Lisa, a Senior Associate at PwC (PricewaterhouseCoopers), one of the Big 4 accounting firms.
I currently work in the Assurance Team at PwC with clients in a range of industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, financial services, utilities, and education. I really enjoy working here, as there is so much variety and interaction with different clients!
After completing my BSc, I decided to pursue an MSc in Business with Finance & Accounting at Warwick Business School, University of Warwick. I believe business is a very practical subject to study, so if you only learn it from the classroom the benefit is restricted, and the course at WBS offered a combination of theory and practice. This helped me to stand out in the competitive application process at PwC and with support from the WBS CareerPlus team, I went on to get an offer from PwC UK.
Got any questions about how I got to where I am today? Ask me anything about applying and interviewing for PwC, life at PwC, what value my MSc has had during my career so far, and moving to and living in the UK as both a student and PwC employee.
I’ll be online throughout this week and look forward to your questions!
If you do have any questions about Warwick Business School's MSc courses or careers support, please ask away and we'll be pleased to help.
